    Please help... Our 1 year old Buff Brahma has been lethargic, not eating or drinking, and having foamy yellow diarrhea for a week. We have isolated her and have been giving her electrolytes with a syringe. We have also been treating her with Corid but have seen no improvement. She won't eat or drink anything on her own. Any suggestions? We just don't know what else to do....

    I'm so sorry! I'm new to keeping chickens, but one of my chickens has had similar poop and today she had a round worm in her poop. So it might be worms, but I really don't know. :( Search this forum for poop chart and maybe try The Chicken Chick website. This forum and her site have been invaluable to me over the last month!

    Good luck!

    Can you post a pic of the poop? It could be a wide variety, though Cocci would be my first diagnosis. How long have you been treating with Corid and what dosage?

    We have been treating for coccidiosis for four days. I have been using 9.5cc in 1 gallon of water. No change at all
